Abstract: The following example is presented. $ G$ is a nondiscrete locally compact amenable group. $ H$ is a subgroup of $ G$ with zero Haar measure such that if $ g \in G \sim H$ then (i) there is a subsemigroup $ S = \bigcup\nolimits_{n = 0}^\infty {{I_n}}$ of $ G$ where the $ {I_n}'s$ are open pairwise disjoint ideals of $ S$ (all right- or all left-ideals) and (ii) $ g \in {I_0}$.
